Deckle Paper Making Workshop (7 September 2024)

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to create hand-made paper by up-cycling different forms of paper that may be lying around at home. This might include old notepad sheets, pages from books and magazines, or paper offcuts. Attendees will learn how to blend these into a pulp and ultimately create new, crafty sheets of paper, complete with deckle edges. Attendees will learn tips about how to create and use a paper making deckle, as well as what other easily found items could be used to make paper. We will consider what factors contribute to paper thickness, different coloration techniques, and even play with the effects that can be achieved by incorporating glitter and small botanicals .
